2008-09: Season in Review

  The 2008-09 season had 20 Gordie Howe Hat Tricks.  Corey Perry had two GHTs, one in the regular season and one in the play-offs.  Fourteen players had their first career GHT.  Brent Seabrook capped off his first career GHT by scoring the game winner in overtime.  Teams who had a player go Gordie won 80% of their games.  In one of the losses, the Toronto Maple Leafs had two players, Jamal Mayers and Luke Schenn both get a Gordie Howe Hat Trick, but the Leafs still lost the game, 8-5 vs the Philadelphia Flyers.  There were 69 three goal Hat Tricks in the NHL in 2008-09.
